Just brought a t4 size blanket for my vf35 and was far too big. Had to cut it down a little and have some stitch work done to keep it away from actuator arm.

I have similar issue, my heat shield is rubbing on the turbo and I can't rebolt it, threads knackered, so need a blanket but they all seem too big, for the baby td04, The squeaking sound is bloody annoying

Ive got a ptp item and the difference it makes to underbonnet temps is huge. One of the best things to fit to help manage temps.

Do you need a blanket if the shield is intact? Would it make a lot of difference compared to a shield?

I had to modify the std heatshield to fit a new downpipe. Running ptp blanket and the modified std heatshield. You can never have too much heatshielding.
